Goldwork has its history rooted in military, ecclesiastical and royal regalia, but it also creates the most beautiful and dramatic embroideries. Using a wide variety of metal threads, it can be combined with other techniques to produce luxurious effects.
This pretty triple leaf spray will teach the rudiments of Goldwork, including the couching of two different textured gold threads, Japanese Gold and Pearl Purl to form the outline of the leaves. A combination of different Purl threads, including Bright Check Purl to give a sparkly surface interspersed with Smooth Purl as a contrast of texture, will introduce the technique of cutwork. The design is finished off with a tiny spangle and chip of Purl.
You will also learn how to handle the various threads and the Tutor will share a little insight into the history of this wonderful technique.
The finished item could be displayed in a small ring frame or used to embellish an item of clothing or a cushion to add a little sparkle.
You do not need any previous experience as this is a beginners class.
There will be plenty of opportunity during the class to ask the Tutor questions and in advance of the class all preparation information will be emailed to you along with an invitation to join the class on the day.
The class kit will be posted out to you. The kit includes all the materials you require to complete the project. It would be useful to have a pencil and paper in case you wish to take extra notes and a pair of embroidery scissors and a 6" hoop will be needed.
